Writers' Devotions to Go

Writers’ Devotions to Go
Meditations from Proverbs
By LeAnn Campbell
Extreme Diva Media, Inc.

Do you bring a professional attitude to your writing? LeAnn Campbell uses the book of Proverbs as a guidebook for writers. Every chapter has one or more nuggets of wisdom to motivate writers. There is guidance for perfecting your craft, choosing words carefully, and handling criticism. Listening to instruction, dealing with rejections, and working diligently instead of acting like a lazy sluggard—Proverbs covers it all. Proverbs 19:2 (NIV) could be a motto for writers. “It is not good to have zeal without knowledge, nor to be hasty and miss the way.”

Writers Devotions to Go covers all this and many more situations that writers face. It includes web sites for contacting writers’ organizations, suggestions for writers who want to establish local groups, guidelines for critique groups, and web sites to determine whether information you get over the Internet is the truth or a hoax.
